During the first week in August, a group of 7 members from our congregation and our transitional minister spent a week at the Iona community. During our time there, we attended two daily services, discussion groups and did a pilgrimage walk around the island. Life in the Abbey was based on community, and all were expected to undertake tasks of cleaning and preparing, as well as taking it in turn to serve meals and clear up afterwards.

The Abbey and its services were though-provoking and we all experienced some form of spiritual uplift from the visit.
